I've been witnessing an astronomical rise in people's stress levels and anxiety. Beyond the detriment to one’s body, the mental and emotional toll is profound. I'm not immune to stress; I understand it personally.
When there's deep childhood wounds or trauma stuck in the nervous system, it can be really hard to regulate your fight or flight response. Add to that the amped up energy in the world and all the places our attention is pulled, as well as the drive to “do, do, do.” It can be exhausting, and cause overwhelm.
The first step to calming that, is a very deep grounding meditation; getting out of the mental spin and into your body. Matching the slow healing frequency of the earth, to create an experience of rooted calm.
I know that that's not always easy. Usually there are so many issues that can keep you from wanting to be grounded, including stored pain in the body. The irony is, the more you’re in your body and connected to the Earth, the easier it is to release the pain. If you’re dissociated and out of your body, the pain stays trapped.
You’re here on this planet to experience life in a body. From within, is where you can create and manifest change; not from flying out in the ethers. Being grounded in yourself is the place of greatest empowerment for you. And where you can experience a deep feeling of safety.
This is why I'm always talking about grounding yourself. This is why I consistently release grounding meditations. I want to help you feel more powerfully embodied. (Check out my meditations on YouTube)
If this triggers you at all, breathe. You may have stored trauma coming to the surface. Simply sit with the idea that it can be possible to feel comfortable and safe in your body. Don’t push the issue, just sit with the idea.
Interestingly, I was going to remind you of this even before I released the upcoming meditation class. Check it out if you want a different experience of being in your body. One in which your body becomes your friend, and a sacred space for your spirit. You’ll know if it’s right for you.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
